When React Native for Android came out I was excited to investigate it more at one of Liips monthly innovation days. Liip already developed a React Native app for iOS and we wanted to know how it works for Android. We were: Andrey, Germain, Lukasz and me. Germain is currently working on a cross platform app written with Xamarin.
For this hackday we tried to port an existing React Native iOS app to Android.
